Japanese porcelain models like the present example appear to be close, in terms of enamels used, to Kakiemon porcelain of the period, however this piece comes from the Arita kilns. A number of very early coloured figures are known to have been imported in to Britain and Europe, related figures can be seen at Burghley House.
